Question How to setup HTC Mail app?

Guys, a little help needed here, I cannot seem to setup my yahoo mail in HTC mail app. I always have this "cannot connect to mail server" error

protocol: pop, apop or imap? - tried all
security type: none, ssl, tls? - tried all
pop server: yahoo.com.sg - also tried yahoo.com only

It was easy and simple on my Sony Ericsson Arc Mail app last time, i don't have to go through those setup above. With htc, i don't know since it's my first phone from them.

My Nexus 5 mods for PA
My Xperia SP on Paranoid Android
My Family's Android devices - xperia P, xperia SP, xperia TX, moto G, and nexus 5

Incoming settings
Protocol = POP
Username = your full yahoo email address
PW: Your password
POP Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
Security Type = None

Outgoing settings
Username = same as above
PW = same
SMTP server = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Security type = None
Server port = 587

However in order to get POP access to your Yahoo email in the HTC Mail app on your phone, you must either be paying for their premium service or you have to agree to receive newsletters from Yahoo `partners` to get it for free. It's a bit cheeky imo when others offer it as standard for free.
